  • Experience visualizing data in different manners (charts, scorecards, tables, etc.)
  • Familiar with BI tools such as Apache Superset (preferred), Tableau, or Metabase
  • Familiarity with professional software engineering practices for the full development life cycle, including agile methodologies, coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, and testing

PREFERRED PROFILE:

  • Experience with Material UI is a plus
